    No, by all means, hijack away! I'm sure your vid will answer lots of questions, especially a lot of the ones brought up by this thread. I'm totally stoked about getting it.

    We have always done 3 vertical capped on each end, reason is your splitting 4 feet so every 2 feet you have a stud. This gives you a better chance at hitting a stud if your hanging something heavy. also if people are running into them. If you switch it you have 2, 4 foot boxes, less chance of catching a stud.

    That's the only logical way I can see it. If they DON'T use precut studs then they have to cut all them 2x4's.


    Anyone wanna post their setup? 2x4's, 2x2's, luan, osb etc?


    I'm doing a lot of this by myself and I've done about 10 panels and... well, with my back, it's not gonna last much longer with these heavy arse 2x3 panels with 7/16" osb! The cheapest luan I can find is about twice the cost of our osb BUT there are some other boards (not labeled real well) that seems about the same as the luan stuff but it's only about $10 a sheet, compared to my osb at $7.27, I don't think it'd be a bad choice to go to.

    Hey Twin

    We use 2x3 studs. We are indoors and we had 7/16 OSB on then and they are pretty much the same as the day we built them, yes there heavy but hard to damage.

    Yeah, well , you sent me one about the castle. Great book, thanks.

    I'm just getting more ideas before I go buy a ton of materials. I only used the lumber I had already bought long ago :P
    Essentially I was making what I call "Impact Walls"

    You know, where I plan to smash faces at the end of a hallway / scare lol.

    Hey scream

    They are the 3 basic flat designs for stage sets. They make them with 1x3 studs flat and luan. There light and thin for storage.

    Gotcha, I'm sure they could be adapted for haunts, it was recommended to me years ago when I first asked about building panels.


    I use the 3 vertical stud method myself out of habit now. I haven't had amy issues with them breaking, I use 2x4s to frame it and typically OSB to cover it. I just thought for new people doing panels for cheap that pic.might help I had no idea where they came from tho lol so thanks
